Take-Two Interactive’s NBA 2K20 and EA Sports’ NHL 20 one-hour game simulations following the existing Caps and Wizards schedule are coming to NBC Sports Washington beginning on Saturday.

The simulations kick off with the Wizards vs. the Bucks on Saturday at 7 PM and will include the same video and audio components of NBA 2K20 gameplay, along with contributions from NBCSW’s Wizards experts surrounding the coverage.

The first Caps simulation comes on Tuesday March 24 at 7 PM with a matchup of the last two Stanley Cup Champions, the Capitals vs. St. Louis. The presentations will also feature commentary from NBCSW’s Capitals announcers. 

“We know that fans are as disappointed as we are to not be able to watch our favorite teams on a nightly basis. We hope that these fun and engaging video game simulations will entertain our fans and help provide a greater sense of normalcy during these challenging times” said Zach Leonsis, Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at Monumental Sports & Entertainment and General Manager of Monumental Sports Network. “We hope that when people tune in and watch these simulated games, they will be able to enjoy some friendly competitive play from the comforts of their own home.”

 “We hope this content gives fans a welcome outlet for their passion and interest in the Capitals and Wizards,” said NBCSW Senior Vice President & General Manager Damon Phillips. “If the video game version of Bradley Beal and Alex Ovechkin live up to their real-life counterparts, fans should be in for a fun experience.”
